Oh how quickly one's franken dreams can die.
I'd been wanting to franken a glittery robin's egg blue for quite a while. After my blog sale haul, I was excited to get started. I used Etude House's very very sheer mint green as my base color and was off to a promising start after adding some Urban Outfitters blue and green and Santee white. It looked like a creamier, bluer version of the City Color mint green.
Pretty good, in the bottle at least.
Unfortunately, things started going wrong when I added the glitter. Despite a successful sample test, the glitter color started to leach once it had been in the polish for a little while, turning the whole thing into a slightly grayish, gritty, and not particularly glittery mess.
Oh well. Maybe next time.
